The Mission District, also commonly called "The Mission", is a neighborhood in San Francisco, California, USA, named after the sixth Alta California mission, Mission San Francisco de Asis. The area occupies land previously divided into ranchos owned by Spanish-Mexican families such as the Valencianos, Guerreros, Dolores, Bernals, Noes and De Haros.
The Roxie is one of the few remaining small cinemas remaining in San Francisco. Their mission statement is:
"The Roxie New College Film Center is the San Francisco Bay Area’s most provocative arthouse cinema, and a dynamic learning venue for New College of California media studies students. Through exhibition of diverse films, film festivals and special events, the Center seeks to be the premiere community resource and venue for San Francisco’s diverse Bay Area film community, and a model for the future of independent film exhibition in the United States."

The Mission District, also commonly called "The Mission", is a neighborhood in San Francisco, California, USA, named after the sixth Alta California mission, Mission San Francisco de Asis. The area occupies land previously divided into ranchos owned by Spanish-Mexican families such as the Valencianos, Guerreros, Dolores, Bernals, Noes and De Haros.
The San Francisco de Asís cemetery, which adjoins the property on the south side, was originally much larger than its present boundaries, running west almost to Church Street and north into what is today 16th Street. It was reduced in various stages, starting with the extension of 16th Street through the former Mission grounds in 1889, and later by the construction of the Mission Dolores Basilica Center and the Chancery Building of the Archdiocese of San Francisco in the 1950s. Some remains were reburied on-site in a mass grave, while others were relocated to various Bay Area cemeteries. Today, most of the former cemetery grounds are covered by a paved playground behind the Mission Dolores School. The cemetery that currently remains underwent a careful restoration in the mid-1990s.
This is one of the two cemeteries located within the city of San Francisco.

There are many spots in The Mission known for graffiti and murals. The alleyways between Mission and Valencia are full of graffiti, and always interesting to shoot.

My Neighborhoods photo collaboration project, week 16: The Tenderloin.
The Tenderloin is a dense downtown neighborhood located in the flatlands on the southern slope of Nob Hill, nestled between the Union Square shopping district to the northeast and the Civic Center office district to the southwest. It encompasses about fifty square blocks and a conservative description has it bounded on the North by Post Street, on the East by Mason Street, on the South by Mission Street and on the West by Van Ness and Ninth Streets.
Mitchell Brothers O’Farrell Theatre is a striptease club at 895 O’Farrell Street. Opened as an X-rated movie theater by Jim and Artie Mitchell on July 4, 1969, the O’Farrell remains one of America’s oldest and most notorious adult-entertainment establishments; by 1980, the nightspot had become a major force in popularizing close-contact lap dancing, which would become the norm in striptease clubs nationwide. The late journalist Hunter S. Thompson, a longtime friend of the Mitchells and frequent visitor at the club, claimed to be its night manager in 1985 and called the O’Farrell "the Carnegie Hall of public sex in America" and Playboy magazine praised it as "the place to go in San Francisco!"

If you would like to see everything that is wrong with San Francisco, just visit Boeddeker Park. Located at the corner of Eddy and Jones Streets, it is often unused by children and is commonly occupied by drug addicts and intoxicated people during the daytime. Drugs are openly sold and consumed here, despite the fact that the San Francisco Police Department’s Tenderloin Station is located across the intersection from the park. This park has been listed in the www.pps.org/great_public_spaces/one?public_place_id=88“>Project for Public Spaces Hall of Shame.

In early 2004, San Francisco officially designated Larkin Street between Eddy and O’Farrell streets as "Little Saigon" (Sài Gòn Nhỏ). Located in the Tenderloin district where 2,000 of the city’s 13,000 Vietnamese-American residents live, the two-block stretch is more than 80% Vietnamese-owned. A formal symbolic entrance was erected in July of 2008.

Pictured here is the former location of the Black Hawk nightclub. The Black Hawk was a legendary San Francisco nightclub hosting a spectacular range of jazz talents during its heyday from 1949 to 1963. It was located on the corner of Turk Street and Hyde Street. The site of the Blackhawk is now a parking lot. The building next door on Hyde Street (now housing the 222 Club), where the tape recorders were set up to record the Miles Davis album, still stands.
